On Tuesday, November 2, the Greater Dayton RTA will provide free rides system-wide to ensure access for everyone who chooses to exercise their right to vote in the election. These free rides apply to both RTA’s fixed-route and paratransit services.
The RTA understands the necessity for reliable transportation to fulfill this constitutional right. Along with providing thousands of riders with daily transportation to work, medical appointments, and activities, this Election Day program ensures the polls remain accessible for all. The RTA has been providing free rides for all elections since 2018.
Riders are reminded that they do not need to scan their Tapp Pay app or card—just simply board the bus and enjoy your free ride! To find the bus stop closest to their polling place, riders are encouraged to use the Transit app, RTA’s official real-time information and trip-planning mobile application. The app is free to download and available to both Android and Apple users. More information about the app can be found on our website here: www.iriderta.org/ridetime/track-by-app.
Those needing to find their polling location can use the Montgomery County Board of Election’s website at https://lookup.boe.ohio.gov/vtrapp/montgomery/pollfinder.aspx.
